in washington, d.c. good morning, i'm gregg jarrett in "america's newsroom.". patti ann: freight to be with you again, gregg. i'm patti ann browne in for martha maccallum. there is little to no progress reported in making a deal to avert across the board tax hikes for 90% of american households. president obama on his way back to washington right now but not all the lawmakers are there and if congress and the president do not reach a compromise before january 1st many analysts say the economy will slide back into a recession. gregg: mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. mike, any indication of the president's next move? >> reporter: well, gregg, last time we heard the president talk about the this matter he said he was calling on congressional leaders to essentially make sure taxes do not go up on middle class americans. presumably that would be a package that continues the bush tax cuts for those making up to $250,000. he would also like to continue emergency unemployment benefits for two million americans. and beyond that, details are kind of murky at this point. so we await the president to

term the best way to break washington stalemates, rally the public to their cause. here's how the president put it to cbs news. >> so getting out of this town, spending more time with the american people, listening to them and also then being in a conversation with them about where do we go together as a country, i need to do a better job of that in my second term. >> better job of explaining? >> well, explaining, but also inspiring. >> reporter: wolf, when it comes to a deal on averting the fiscal cliff, negotiations are on deep freeze. from the white house's perspective, they're not going to budge until house republicans come around to the view that tax rates on the wealthiest have to go up. but you know house republicans don't want to agree to any kind of deal that includes that. so right now it's a blinking contest. of course, the white house thinks it's one they'll ultimately win, because in the new year tax rates automatically go up. >> and there could be a recession once again if we go into that fiscal cliff. how worried are officials over at the white house that the pr
things done in washington than playing politics. i think to recognize there's been real progress made, right the border is safer today, the immigration system is better, the two parties worked together to do that over the last few years. there are still some meaningful things that need to get done. the d.r.e.a.m. act, we have to fix the low-end and high-end visa system. the mexicans are going to do a whole boar border system. i think there will be a lot of room to work together next year to get something meaningful done. if the republicans are earnest and play it straight i think they'll get a lot of credit for working with the democrats to fix the broken immigration system and making it better. jon: getting something meaningful done, it seems like a longtime since that's happened in washington. we'll look forward to it. simon rosenberg. kate obenshane thank you much. jenna: the nato alliance warning the assad regime in syria against using chemical weapons against his own people. this is an attempt to for once and for all crush the 21-month rebellion there. nato is considering a turki

. good to see you. let's bring in lori montgomery for "the washington post," democratic strategy blake zeff. we decided to focus on this today. lori, let me start with you. both house leaders today, it really seems as if talks are -- it seems they're at a standstill, but our first read team is convinced a deal is in sight. we heard from debbie wasserman schultz she heard a deal is in sight. what are you hearing? >> you can see what the framework of a deal is, and i think today you heard speaker boehner. his office tried to walk it back, but for the first time he made public remarks where he didn't rule out an increase in tax rates. you have to wonder if they don't start to move towards a resolution it to what has been the big stumbling point. >> zachary, she mentioned an increase in rates. it would seem that the magic number might be 37%. the president said 39.5% for the highest income earners. right now we're at 35%. maybe i'm oversimplifying, but the obvious compromise would be right smack in the middle. no? >> we'll take a finger in the wind. this is where people don't like to see t
're thinking washington would not be so stupid as to let this fall through, go off the fiscal cliff. bottom line we expect the speaker to hammer away on too much spending. washington has a spending problem, a familiar theme in all these talks, jenna. jenna: we'll take the viewers back there when bain starts to speak. mike, thank you. >> reporter: thank you. jon: wouldn't it be nice if he could talk about some progress. joining us with more on this, kimberly strassel, a columnist for "the wall street journal" as michael lewded to, they have about what, 72 hours really to get something concrete done here? >> that's right. when you think about this, everyone talks about the january 1st deadline but reality is most people are looking at next friday as the real deadline. they're assuming that that is when the markets consider there to be a deadline. if something isn't done by then maybe panic ensues. so when you work back from that you have to leave at least a week for the republicans to put something up in the house, give those requisite three days for members to read it, for the public to see
from across the country came to washington today. to urge lawmakers to be careful not to hurt charity in search for revenue. >> for every dollar a donor receives in tax relief the public receives $3 of benefit. no other tax benefit generates that positive public impact. >> as they fanned out across capitol hill to talk to lawmakers the debate rageed on how to avoid the fiscal cliff. president obama trying to argue the republican plan wouldn't work suggested that the g.o.p. would eliminate charitable deductions altogether. >> if you eliminate charitable deductions, ever hospital and university and non-for profit agency, across the country would find themselves on the verge of collapse. >> destroying every charity in the country as a powerful political argument no republican plan to eliminate the charitable deductions. oddly enough the president himself long favored capping deductions at 28%. also in his current budget. >> a different way to do that, that would raise $600 billion over ten years. >> analysts say that 50 $50,000 cap the g.o.p. suggested would raise more than that. some $7
